Re: Too easily fooled to be thought an honest broker of correct information or dodgy intelligence?
Never mind chatgpt, a drunken monkey flailing at a keyboard with a live haddock in each hand is better than that textual effluvium. ….. David 132
Such an ad hominem attack, Dan 132, more likely than not indicates/proves that one cannot honestly dispute the opinion offered.
Ad hominem (Latin for ‘to the person’), short for argumentum ad hominem, is a term that refers to several types of arguments, most of which are fallacious. Typically this term refers to a rhetorical strategy where the speaker attacks the character, motive, or some other attribute of the person making an argument rather than attacking the substance of the argument itself. This avoids genuine debate by creating a diversion to some irrelevant but often highly charged issue. The most common form of this fallacy is “A makes a claim x, B asserts that A holds a property that is unwelcome, and hence B concludes that argument x is wrong”.
The valid types of ad hominem arguments are generally only encountered in specialized philosophical usage. These typically refer to the dialectical strategy of using the target’s own beliefs and arguments against them, while not agreeing with the validity of those beliefs and arguments. …. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ad_hominem

I believe Microsoft (and their machines) started working on GPT-5 just before GPT-4 was released, i.e. GPT-5 is currently assimilating all of the queries and responses from GPT-4, along with your Office files (probably), your computer code that you wrote with the help of CoPilot, and anything you have said on Teams, LinkedIn, and publicly accessible webforums like The Register since then.. ….. cyberdemon – “Re: Not so smart”
Play nice and do no evil is sound advice if ever inclined to front nonsense in defence of the introduction of straw men trailing and trialing paper tigers, for the chance then of unintended negative consequences is correspondingly high.
